Question
i have a sofa and loveseat in the color olive.  i have lots of accent furniture in the color black. what is the best wall color.

Answer
You can use taupe if you want something neutral.  My favorite is Glidden's Toasty Grey.  If you want more contrast, go lighter with the wall color.  If you want something dramatic, use an earthy tone like persimmon or terra cotta.  If you want something more monochromatic (all the same) use your sofa and loveseat color minus a couple of shades.

Expertise

Visit my web site at: http://www.jennifertaylorwojcik.com Decor: I've written about it, planned it, designed it and colored it, and I've never stopped loving it. It's not what you spend, or who made it, it's how it makes you feel.

Experience

College, advertising, public relations, marketing, free-lance writing and a plethora of creative endeavors have led me here. As an entrepreneur in decorative product design, I learned the hard way how tough it can be to be in business for yourself. A stint at a law firm taught me humility too. Some three thousand questions ago, I wondered if I could really help. Obviously, I'm still here and still taking your questions. God Bless You!
